TOPEKA, Kan. -- April 1, 2013

Filing individual income taxes online removes the onerous process of filling
out paper forms, and is the fastest way for taxpayers to receive refunds,
according to the Kansas Department of Revenue. Kansas residents can visit
Kansas WebFile (https://www.kansas.gov/webfile) to file their 2012 Kansas
Individual Income Tax Returns online.

Online filing through WebFile is secure, fast and paperless, and allows
taxpayers to have their refunds directly deposited into their bank accounts.
Paper-filed returns do not qualify for direct deposit funds.

Taxpayers who file and request a direct deposit usually receive their refunds
in less than one week – up to 80 percent quicker than those who file
traditional paper forms. People also may choose to receive their refunds in
the form of paper checks. Kansas launched WebFile in 2002. Last year, the
Department of Revenue received 84 percent of over 1.5 million individual
income tax returns electronically, an increase of four percent over the prior
year.

The 2012 Individual Income Tax Return deadline is April 15, 2013. Save time
and file online today at: https://www.kansas.gov/webfile.
